in peace negotiations with other countries or president clinton's global initiative, former presidents have a valuable role in using their experience and knowledge to help the u.s. in both a public and private capacity. the world has changed dramatically since the 9/11 terrorist attacks. the threats to american personnel and interests continue as terrorists raged a war against the united states. arbitrarily limiting the secret service protection to 10 years might have been good after the cold war ended and before the global war on terror begun. in which they're considered targets, we must make sure that the security of our former chief executives are not jeopardized. h.r. 6620 recognizes that those who serve as president are symbols of america and american freedoms and deserve to be protected. there are only a handful of americans who will be called upon to serve this country as president. these individuals represent america not only while serving in office but remain in the public consciousness long after they leave. h.r. 6620 simply recognizes this unique role and reinstates lifetime prot
